About Us

A Gen-X and a Millennial

We are a mother and daughter team.  A great combination of adventurous women who love to travel. We love the outdoors and a variety of ways to experience this amazing and awesome world. And although we travel we are not tourists.  We love experiencing the places we go like a local. Eat where the locals eat, experience their festivals and traditions, and make friends even if we only know a few words of each others language.  

Boutique Adventures is our business. We like to keep our travels small so we can go into places that most mainstream tourists never get to experience.( However there are also those iconic places that you just can't miss if you are there!) We like to find the hidden treasures to give you that sense of amazed discovery you had as a child, to feel intensely again!

If there is anyone who you want to plan your vacation, it's Helena. She goes above and beyond expectations. Everything was arranged just the way I wanted it, the hotel and the activities - even the perfect local guide! I look forward to my next trip she is planning for me and my daughter: New Zealand!
